CSBS DP at-a-glance


Communication and Symbolic Behavior Scales Developmental Profile, First Normed Edition

The CSBS DP™ Record Forms, sold in packages for easy re-ordering, are assessment forms for the Communication and Symbolic Behavior Scales Developmental Profile (CSBS DP™), an easy-to-use, norm-referenced screening and evaluation tool that measures the communicative competence of children with a functional communication age of 6 to 24 months and a chronological age of 6 months to 6 years.

Derived from the popular, norm-referenced CSBS™, CSBS DP™ is shorter and faster and lets early intervention professionals begin identification earlier. CSBS DP™ is an ideal starting point for planning IFSPs, determining the efficacy of inteventions, documenting changes in a child's behavior over time, and identifying areas for further assessment.

A package of CSBS DP™ Record Forms includes:

  • 2 Outline Cards
  • 20 Infant-Toddler Checklists: In 5–10 minutes, caregivers answer 24 multiple-choice questions grouped into seven language predictor clusters: Emotion and Eye Gaze, Communication, Gestures, Sounds, Words, Understanding, and Object Use. Then, a professional combines the clusters to yield scores in three composite categories: social, speech, and symbolic. The Checklist can also be used to monitor development every 3 months between the ages of 6 and 24 months.
  • 20 1-page copies of the CSBS DP Infant-Toddler Checklist: Screening Reports
  • 20 Caregiver Questionnaires: If the Checklist indicates a need for further evaluation, caregivers complete this easy-to-read four-page questionnaire, which measures in more detail the same seven clusters. It takes approximately 15–25 minutes and is designed to be given or mailed to the caregiver before the child is brought in for the Behavior Sample.
  • 20 Caregiver Questionnaire: Scoring Worksheets
  • Behavior Sample: Caregiver Perception Rating

Available separately or as part of the CSBS DP™ Complete Kit are the other materials required to conduct a CSBS DP™ assessment.

These forms are part of CSBS DP™, an easy-to-use, norm-referenced screening and evaluation tool that helps determine the communicative competence (use of eye gaze, gestures, sounds, words, understanding, and play) of young children. CSBS DPis an ideal starting point for IFSP planning and can be used as a guide to indicate areas that need further assessment.

This product is sold in a package of 102.
